Do I have to upload a resume?

You may need to upload your resume online for a variety of reasons during your job search, and each reason might require a slightly different strategy for uploading the document. If you do not create a resume using an online site’s resume builder but still want to post it to the site, you will have to upload it.

Is it better to upload resume as Word or PDF?

Most employers will accept either a Word document or PDF file, leaving the decision up to you. Although both file types have their own pros and cons, PDF is usually the better choice. Sending your resume as a PDF file will preserve the formatting and ensure that the document looks exactly the way you intended.

What format should I send my CV?

Most people prefer a Word document (. doc or . docx) due to the format being easily opened, editable and readable by ATS software, or an Applicant Tracking System. Many large companies and recruiters use ATS to automatically sift through CVs to ensure only suitable matches are sent to the hiring manager.
